Fashion illustration is spotlighted at a gallery show in Alhambra

April 1, 2010 | 12:36 pm

LlGallery Nucleus, an art space in Alhambra, will be hosting an exhibition that celebrates the venerated (and often quirky) art of fashion illustration.

Kicking off Saturday, "Line of Style: Fashion Illustration Spanning the Globe" will include pieces from more than 20 international fashion illustrators whose work has appeared in Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Elle and Nylon, among other publications.

A handful of the artists represented also collaborated with biggie design houses such as Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Marc Jacobs. A variety of media will be represented — watercolors and ink as well as  textiles and digital media. 

Featured artists include Dazed & Confused magazine contributor Baiba Ladiga, the late, great movie-poster artist Bob Peak, London artist Coco Pit, L.A. resident Esther Kim, high-fashion collaborator Jarno Kettunen, commercial fashion illustrator Laura Laine and Danish artist Naja Conrad Hansen.

The gallery will host an opening-night soiree for the exhibition from 7 to 10 p.m. that's open to the public and features 50 artworks, runway shows from local designers Connie Lim
 and Valerj Pobega

, and raffle prizes. Find out more about the exhibition and the event at the gallery's website.
